I am so excited to have finished this project. When I saw the fabric online, I knew that it reminded me of my grandmother and I knew that she would love the fabric.
I decided to do a log cabin quilt. I figured that it would display the fabric well. I have never done a log cabin quilt before and always wanted to try it. Like anything else that I try, I could not just do a simple log cabin block. I wanted to really use the colors of the fabric and create a beautiful design. I began to plan out the quilt so that I could order the right amount of fabric. I have learned that if you do not get all you want at once, then if you run short, you may have a hard time finding extra fabric.
I finished this quilt on December 10th, 2019. Just in time to send it as a Christmas present.
I recently finished a quilt for my sister. She had a baby boy just before this last Christmas. I made her a Dinosaur quilt. I created it with a cotton front and a minky back. Then I used the satin binding, which I had never used before. I think the quilt came out wonderful.
I recently finished a quilt for my Great Aunt. It was her 90th birthday on September 11th this year. I felt like sending her something nice, so I made her a quilt.
This one was a lot of fun. It took me a while to lay out the pattern, but once I figured that out, everything went together nicely. I kept it as simple as I could. Each quilt that I do, I always try and do something that I have never done before. On this quilt, I used my new quilting rulers and ruler foot to create a simple scallop on the border. I really enjoyed using the rulers and can’t wait to find a project where I can use more of them. It was a lot easier than I thought it would be.
